UPND cadre defamed Mumbi, cop testifies

PATRIOTIC Front (PF) deputy secretary-general Mumbi Phiri.

A POLICE officer yesterday testified that she charged and arrested United Party for National Development supporter Asha Hakantu for libel after he allegedly defamed Patriotic Front deputy secretary general Mumbi Phiri (pictured).

It is alleged that Hakantu, with intent to defame Mrs Phiri on May 6 this year in Lusaka, unlawfully published a statement on WhatsApp which was allegedly defamatory.
Chief detective inspector Janet Nyama told the court that she was asked to investigate the matter after Mrs. Phiri lodged a complaint at the police headquarters.
